Police Brutality in the United States
The United States incarcerates its own citizens at a higher rate than any other country in the world. Black men account for almost 40% of the prison population; yet Black men only compose of 12% of the general U.S. population. There are more Black men in U.S. prisons than in U.S. universities. The United States has grown complacent to its acceptance of a police-dominated state, where police brutality against its citizens goes largely unpunished.
